Sydney’s own TONIGHT ALIVE are heading home and to celebrate they’ve announced a very special Australian headline tour. Kicking off on October 31 at The Basement in Canberra, and with a show right here in Newcastle at The Cambridge Hotel on Friday, November 3rd.
This run of dates will see Tonight Alive go back to where it all began and revisit all the rooms they used to play when they first started. Joining Tonight Alive upon their return will be their new friends in The Beautiful Monument.
Currently dominating stages at Slam Dunk Festival in the UK, the Back To Beginnings Tour comes off the back of the exciting announcement Tonight Alive have found a brand new Australian home at UNFD, where they dropped their latest single, “World Away”.
Last spied Down Under playing arenas with A Day To Remember in December 2016, Tonight Alive want to celebrate their homecoming by giving the next generation of Australian talent a leg up, but with a twist. Tonight Alive ran a competition earlier in the year that gave local bands the opportunity to win the opening slot in each city on the tour. And the twist? To apply, the band had to have a female member.
“We have toured with plenty of awesome bands around the world, and we’ve noticed more bands have female members and the number of women getting involved is growing too! The rock genre, and music, in general, is male-dominated for no good reason at all. Women are awesome and we wanted to celebrate that. So for this tour, we want to know who the best rock bands in Australia with female members are.” – Tonight Alive
Tonight Alive is composed of vocalist Jenna McDougall, lead guitarist Whakaio Taahi, rhythm guitarist Jake Hardy, bassist Cameron Adler and drummer Matt Best. The voice of their generation and a force on the global music scene, Tonight Alive have released a trio of successful albums with The Other Side (2013) and Limitless (2016) debuting on the Australian ARIA Chart at #5 and #6 respectively.
